Clip to ScrapBook #7

I'm still on the fence about this. The thing is, MOST of them "got" it. When they Pair Share / Retell, using our Anchor Chart, they mention the theme. I've noticed that this class is quick to pick up and use vocabulary. "Extremely, topple, and approaching" were words from The Three Pigs, and I was delighted to see "extremely" appear in an unrelated writing assignment! I also heard one say to another, in math, "That's a good plan. You're like the 3rd Little Pig." My favorite moment, during this mini-unit, was when I did the read-aloud for the first time, and a student shouted out, "If he ATE the Big Bad Wolf, then he just ate his brothers!"

It probably WAS beyond the developmental scope of about 20 percent of the class, but the other 80 had no trouble grasping and internalizing this information... Why NOT go deeper? Isn't that Common Core? Isn't that Close Reading?

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts...
